Only six US physician associates recruited for practices despite £50k salary offer


I would be very concerned about taking on a "dependent practitioner" at £50,000pa when fully trained doctors are earning less. This, I assume, means that they cannot prescribe - also who carries the can for liability insurance? Would you sign prescriptions presented to you by a PA? If so, shows some considerable level of trust. But who gets sued if there is an error? Yes, right first time. You.
